“Last weekend, the UI unveiled an artistic representation of what the Kibbie Dome will look like in a couple of years,” writes Family Phil. “The end walls will be replaced with translucent panels. The field will be dug down 12 feet to add more seating and better sight lines.

I snapped a photo of it at the spring game, where it was on display.” More here.
